New Loft with a great ceiling


When concert pianist Inon Barnatan moved from London to Manhattan his main concern was finding a home large enough for the Steinway that was moving with him. ‘In New York it wasn’t so easy to find someplace where a 9-foot grand piano can fit and where I could play,’ says Mr. Barnatan. After a year of house hunting he heard about a 1906 warehouse in Harlem that was being converted into lofts.

The first day that the building went on the market I went and saw it,’ says Mr. Barnatan. He paid $1.182 million for this approximately 1,946-square-foot condominium in 2007. In addition to space, Mr. Barnatan wanted an older building ‘so sound wouldn’t be much of an issue,’ he says. He practices anywhere from two to 12 hours a day, he says, and travels at least half the year. Mr. Barnatan says his musician friends like the kitchen with its six-burner Viking stove.
